to winning back the jewish vote? next week the united nations general assembly takes place, palestinian statehood will be on the agenda, and they are looking to see how the president acts. >> reporter: it's whether or not it's a problem of perception or reality. what i can tell you is the obama campaign is actively reaching out to the jewish community certainly to all of their base, but to the jewish community to shore up support among jewish voters. here at the white house they're not saying anything about losing support among jewish voters. instead, they're trying to reinforce the notion that the administration remains a strong supporter of israel and jay carney, in fact, repeated several times this week the endorsement, strong endorsement, from israel's prime minister that the u.s. remains strong or this administration has been committed to israel's security. so, that's the message that they're trying to push forward. but as you pointed out, all of this coming into sharper focus as the president heads to the u.n. general assembly next week and this issue of palestinian statehood will

to throw some fuel into the fire here. for an already tense session at the united nations, the general assembly is trying to deal with the palestinian authority's intention of putting in a request for u.n. membership. that would essentially force the world to recognize palestinian statehood without any direct negotiations between the palestinian authority and israel and it's a very dangerous slope as far as president obama is concerned. he spent his time at the podium urging the palestinian authority not to do that. but at this point, there's no indication that they are not going to go forward. the u.s., of course, has that option of vetoing the request outright. it would put an end to it. there's concern that the u.s. does that, there could be a backlash of violence in the middle east so a very precarious situation today. and mahmoud ahmadinejad's arrival here at the u.n. to speak is not putting anyone at ease. that's the latest from here at the u.n. let's take it back to you guys. >> all right, thank you very much for the live report from the east side of manhattan. >> now to the oth
to the secretary-general of the united nations, saying he wants to take his bid for full membership of the united nations, through the security council, to the general assembly. we expect him to keep his statement -- stick to his statement. >> but you oppose it. >> very much so. we oppose it not because we oppose the creation of a palestinian state. we're all for that. but the reality that can only be achieved through direct negotiations with the palestinians and israelis. >> your hope is that he goes there, tables it, you're not pushing for a final vote? but leaves a space for final negotiations? >> we'll see what happens, george. we know one thing for sure. it won't succeed because in the security council, you need nine affirmative votes and no vetoes by a permanent member. and we don't know for sure what the vote count will be. but we know they're not going to get through. >> that it's even gotten to this point, has gotten president some criticism from many of his opponents. mitt romney calling it an unmitigated diplomatic disaster. and texas governor, rick perry, piled on
the united nations with a request for recognition today. the speech -- abbas' speech was warmly received at the u.n. general assembly but not by the u.s. or by israel. so how did it come to this, christ ie? had >> we could go back many decades to answer that question but we could also start with the administration, you remember the president began very hopeful to do something about the middle east the >> they're always hopeful the >> get them talking and defuse tensions and maybe that would be a bridge to building warmer relations in the region the but two years later, obviously things have fallen completely apart, the parties aren't even talking to each other and don't seem to have any incentive to do that. gwen: and the u.s.a. could not persuade abbas not to bring this big challenge to the u.n., which we -- they were desperate to do. >> they've had many weeks, many months to work on that. it would be embarrassing. the u.s. obviously opposes it. the u.s. and israel want to see this worked out in direct taungs but despite -- talks but despite all the months of direct diplomacy, it still
, palestinian leader mahmoud abbas presented the united nations with a request for recognition today. the speech -- abbas' speech was warmly received at the u.n. general assembly but not by the u.s. or by israel. so how did it come to this, christ ie? had >> we could go back many decades to answer that question but we could also start with the administration, you remember the president began very hopeful to do something about the middle east the >> they're always hopeful the >> get them talking and defuse tensions and maybe that would be a bridge to building warmer relations in the region the but two years later, obviously things have fallen completely apart, the parties aren't even talking to each other and don't seem to have any incentive to do that. gwen: and the u.s.a. could not persuade abbas not to bring this big challenge to the u.n., which we -- they were desperate to do. >> they've had many weeks, many months to work on that. it would be embarrassing. the u.s. obviously opposes it. the u.s. and israel want to see this worked out in direct taungs but despite -- talks but despite all the
the united nations and a day before the president is supposed to speak to the u.n. general assembly and this is interesting politics that we will be watching on several fronts. one is that the texas governor is slamming this process that is about to get underway up at the u.n. in which the palestinians may get a vote on statehood. it is a vote that the united states is expected to block. the obama administration is basically going to side with israel on that question, and that's going to be a messy situation for the obama administration, but the fact that this process is underway is really giving some red meat to the republicans. rick perry coming to manhattan and giving remarks. a portion of which we obtained here at cnn. he is expected to say in a few moments we are indignant that certain middle east earn leaders have discarded the principal of direct negotiations between the sovereign nation of israel and the palestinian leadership. he goes on to say this is all part of the obama administration's policy of middle east appeasement to leaders in that region and what rick per i have
territory. and yet even here in the general assembly the truth can sometimes break through. in 1984 when i was appointed israel's ambassador to the united nations, i visited the great rabbi. he said to me -- and, ladies and gentlemen, i don't want any of you to be offended because from personal experience of serving here, i know there are many honorable men and women, many capable and decent people serving their nations here, but here's what he said to me. he said to me, you'll be serving in a house of many lies. and then he said, remember that even in the darkest place the light of a single candle can be seen far and wide. today i hope that the light of truth will shine, if only for a few minutes, in a hall that for too long has been a place of darkness for my country. so as israel's prime minister, i didn't come here to win applause. i came here to speak the truth. [applause] the truth is -- [applause] the truth is that israel wants peace. the truth is that i want peace. the truth is that in the middle east at all times, but especially during these turbulent days, peace must be anchored
